[personal profile] viesti 4:52p - seeds
I swore to thrive, and thrive I shall!

I finally went and got like half of my hair chopped off yesterday. I'd been thinking about this for some time, but really made up my mind when I was up at Gemini last month. Took me long enough to finally make an appointment, but it looks and feels GREAT! Pictures will be forthcoming once I've re-dyed my hair, which will probably be early next week at this point, although it's saying something that it looks as good as it does with the fade from the previous dyeing and three months' worth of roots showing.

I've done a little work around the place to make it feel more like home. I'm finally starting to make a little headway with that three-year pile of accumulus in my bedroom, so it's at least a little more navigable at this point. There's still much more work to be done, a lot of it is going to involve donating, giving away, and throwing out of stuff.

Speaking of which: is anyone interested in classic Magic: the Gathering cards dating back to Revised/Ice Age/Mirage?

I've also been working on starting a garden downstairs. It had been in total disrepair, overrun with weeds and brush and littered with stones and cigarette butts, but I'm slowly breathing it back to life. The dirt is actually rich with nutrients, it just required a little love and water and effort.

I haven't written about rock climbing much lately, but I'm really starting to test the limits of my strength and endurance. Up until recently I'd been sticking to vertical walls and shying away from the ones that slope backwards, but no more! At this point I'm starting to climb vertical 5.10c walls, and can do several 5.10a and 5.10b sloped walls which require a lot more balance and strength.

And then there's Belden. It's a small riverside town about four hours north of here, which is where Gemini Festival was last month. I'll be there this weekend again; considering how much of a turning point Gemini was for me, and how much I've dealt with (and started to resolve) since then it'll be interesting to see where things go for me.
